Hi!  I'm Corrie, owner and artist here at Inspired By U.  From back as far as I can remember, I've had a love for seeing things as the can be and bringing that vision to life.  I could spend hours with any kind of medium... pottery, pencils, pastels, paints... whatever I could get my hands on to create something new and wonderful.  There is something magical about making things beautiful.

I chose the name Inspired By U because I want my customers to play a part in the end product. I love to sit down with my clients to capture their vision, and then help to bring that vision to life.  Taking someone's cabinets and transforming them into the kitchen they've always dreamed of fills me up. I get just as excited as my customers to see the transformation take place!  I love being able to use the gifts I’ve been given to bring great joy to others.

In addition to painting, I run a Facebook group called Kitchen Cabinet Painting Experts where I'm able to impact people and help them grow alongside my moderators.  We also have a mastermind group where we share knowledge to stay on the cutting edge with the latest technology so we can serve our customers at the highest level.  

In order to help the DIY community, we partnered with D.C. Clark at Clark Deco and Milesi Wood Coatings to create our new private label waterborne premium Italian coating line.  Our Inspired By U Coatings are available for purchase at and we are thrilled to get these cutting-edge products out to the furniture industry!

We also help the professional refinishers by offering classes throughout the year to add value to their business.  Our goal is to create a positive impact and elevate the refinishing industry, and these classes have helped us help others across the Nation.  If you're a refinisher looking to learn and grow, be sure to check out our upcoming classes.  

I'm so excited about the future as I continue to allow God to lead and give him the Glory every step of the way.

Thanks for stopping by!
